Did you just think about the 'Fresh Prince' theme song? Congratulations, now it's stuck in your head for two weeks.

Maybe it was inevitable: Will Smith is developing a reboot of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. According to TVLine, the new show would be "a present-day family comedy that puts a new spin on the fish-out-of-water tale while maintaining the spirit of Fresh Prince." The show is still in early stages of development by Smith's production company, Overbrook Entertainment.

I know reboots are all the craze right now, but is this the best idea? Fresh Prince is such a nineties show that it has the word "fresh" in the title. And if you're going to do a show with a similar premise in 2015, let's just say that it better delicately and thoroughly explore issues of race and class. And of course have a long, explanatory theme song, a Tatyana Ali cameo, and a prominently featured modernized twist on the Carlton dance.
